- [Voiceover] In this segment, I'd like to talk to you…about one of the really common additions…that a lot of people make to images,…and that's type.…I want to talk to you about Panels and Settings…and setting up a workflow that will really work for you,…and make your typesetting experience a lot more powerful…and a lot more enjoyable.…All right, first let's start with our set of default panels…that we see up here.…This is just the default, essential set…that appears inside of Photoshop,…and notice that, when you choose, you know,…one of the Photoshop Tools,…and we'll just use the basic one,…and you have your Options panel open,…you have these settings and these fields here…that you can set for your type.…
And that works, but it's a little bit slow,…a little bit kludgy, and doesn't give you access…to nearly as much control as you can have…doing type or setting type in another way.…Notice that, when you click right here,…you get these Character and Paragraph panels come up.…A lot more control, but even that is really diminished,…
